Orla Kiely Clocks and Other News

At the end of this month, the UK is suppose to finally launch the new range of wall and alarm clocks that has been promised for a couple of years now. Yet another way to stemify your home. I discussed the clocks with OK-USA management and as far as they know, they are not expecting them this side of the Atlantic. Sad face. I hope this is not true but I guess there is always Amara.com if worse come to worst.

I didn’t have internet this weekend and missed when the old stock I mentioned that I saw last week in the NYC store were put online. It looks like most of the stuff have already sold out but I was able to get a wallet to replace my old one. I noticed that when an item is down to “Limited Stock”, that means that there is only 1-3 left.

One thing that is no longer on the USA website but that the NYC store still has 1 or 2 of  are the animal keyrings. They are currently $37 but if you still haven’t gotten one yet, this is probably going to be your last chance to phone order. Don’t forget to mention that lindaseton sent ya if you do 😉

Shopping in the Village

Let’s see if I can do this with the app.

First of all, the Sarah Flint x L’Orla shoes are 50 percent off in the NY store. Cheaper than on the website.

They also got in boxes and boxes of old stock. Mostly the Damask pattern. Dunno if they will post it on the website or not.

And then I went by Nordstrom Rack and saw these OK bags. Clear the Rack is this Wed but even with the extra discount, it still won’t be as cheap as it is currently from the Orla Kiely website.

Pre-Fall17: Stem/Etc Bags

April is here. Nothing much to look forward to OK-wise as far as I know for this month. Yes, the Resort collex should go on sale at the end of this month but considering that this Resort collex may be my least favorite of the last five years . . . meh.

May, however, is another story. Pre-fall should arrive in the middle of the month and it’s lovely. You can see large photos of the Mainline Lookbook on Vogue here: http://www.vogue.com/fashion-shows/pre-fall-2017/orla-kiely#collection

There is little info on Pre-fall Stem line but luckily, I was able to snap a few spy pix.

First of all, the Embossed Flower Leather will be coming in Mustard! This will – of course – be a different yellow than the Daffodil color from AW16. I know that mustard is one of OK’s favorite colours and it is also the favorite of many of her fans so I expect a craze for these when these bags arrive. (If you prefer the Mainline, there will also be mainline mustard bags with the gold hardware.)

The cotton canvas will be in this shiny finish. The pattern is called Wild Daisy. I am so glad that OK is getting away from the “Striped Tulip/Rosebud” look that had dominated the Stem line last year. Response so far has been very positive to this pattern.


The unlined nylon bags will be in this variation of the Wild Daisy pattern. Sorry for the blurry pix.


As for the Foldaway Travel Bag, I posted the pattern it will come in here: https://lindaseton.wordpress.com/2017/03/14/orla-kiely-foldaway-travel-bag/
